Parents come to Singapore!

My family members came down to Singapore weeks ago to visit me as well as to get to feel Christmas celebration in Singapore, especially my sister who was the first time travelling out from Malaysia. They started the journey to the South by joining Resorts World Sentosa tour, which includes to and fro Ipoh & Singapore via excursion bus, tour around Resorts World Sentosa, $20.00 worth of chips for you to play around the casino, $10.00 lunch meal voucher and boat tour around Singapore River...guest how much for this one day travel package? Just RM58.00!!! I was stunned as it was a real great deal (fyi, taking normal bus trip between Ipoh - Singapore will easily cost you RM40.00 & above)!

As they are coming for a 3 days 2 nights trip, so I booked Strand Hotel family room with 2 queen sized bed. Met them after the end of Singapore River tour. Clean and spacious, with sports and movie channels available. Recommended as the hotel is also within city area, 5-10 minutes walking distance to Orchard Road shopping belt, Bugis Street & National Museum of Singapore, 24-hours Kopitiam food court & 7-11 just right opposite the hotel, and Bras Basah MRT station, bus stops, cabs are all around. S$240/night incl. tax & breakfast for 4 person, I think it's a great deal for family vacations.

We have good food...
 Hotel breakfast with unlimited bread, no wonder my parents said the portion is quite large

 Seafood dinner at Jumbo Seafood Restaurant

Dim Sum at Crystal Jade Restaurant

We have good walking (yeah, lots of walking & walking) & sightseeing around Singapore...
 Bugis Kwan Imm Temple

 City Hall & Suntec's Fountain of Wealth, known for its good feng-shui. Huat ah!!!

Another shot in Bugis Street

My family members enjoyed the trip very much and for me, its a very good self-recharge trip as I haven't rest much since coming back from the Cruise trip in September, busy with my job & business. 

Year 2010 is going to an end, have you reviewed what you've achieved in past one year? Start to reflect back on yourself and plan for Year 2011? For me, I foresee lots of meaningful achievements and breakthroughs will happen in 2011. 

Attitude + Belief + Commitment + Discipline = Success & we can make it!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2011!
